The film has three sections, and each part seems to assume a different set of genre conventions, a different set of emotional cues. After “Family,” the next, “Justice,” follows the suspenseful and, at times, infuriating trial that takes place after a neo-Nazi couple are accused of the bombing. At this point, In the Fade settles into what appears to be a standard-issue courtroom drama, albeit an effectively acted and written one. . . . It goes on like this, with seemingly not a beat out of place.

For well over an hour, In the Fade functions as the sort of crisp and dutiful courtroom procedural that one encounters daily on dozens of cable stations, though without the twists that enliven a routine episode of Law & Order. The film lacks the ferocity that coursed through Akin’s Head-Onand—to a lesser extent—The Edge of Heaven and Soul Kitchen.

Mostly, Akin conducts dirges, and In the Fade is a particularly lugubrious and sententious one… Painfully timely in its snapshot of white-supremacist violence flaring in a multiracial Europe, In the Fade is also a damp hand-wringer that works Kruger’s raw-nerve turn like a dray horse to distract from Akin’s inane determinism. Not even an evocative stinger positing a literally inverted moral horizon can disguise the schematic familiarity of the drama’s angles.

Recensioni e valutazioni

  • chanandre's rating of the film In the Fade

    "Any other jobs you have..?" (pause)*looks him dead in the eye* "M U T T E R."//What does one do with a broken heart? Mend it? Course not. One suicides it up into a million pieces so no one else will ever break it again. Got gut-punched hard. Don't care if she doesn't get an Oscar nod in a coupla days. She already won at Cannes: way more prestigious & filmy. Her performance is absolutely haunting & one for the books.

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film In the Fade

    Diane Kruger's committed, compelling performance, by affording her character some--but not all; that would be asking too much--of the depth and nuance that Akin's latest otherwise lacks, makes it worth sticking with (if only just). The film's first two sections enact the most convenient, reflexive manichaeism available to Western liberalism, while its finale's stab at ambiguity neither convinces nor coheres.

  • Ethan's rating of the film In the Fade

    Diane Kruger gives an incredible and powerful performance in this intense drama that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole way through and offers up some hard questions on loss, grief, vengeance, and the amount of importance we put on other peoples lives and how well the justice system works and what really is justice.

  • msmichel's rating of the film In the Fade

    Powerful film featuring a staggering performance by Diane Kruger that is a complete return to form for director Fatih Akin. What could have been a generic courtroom or revenge film becomes so much more with Akin's detailed scripting and Kruger's thoughtful and complex turn.

  • Kamran's rating of the film In the Fade

    An exemplary procedural centers this thoughtful reflection on violence in society and the bureaucracy which surrounds its. 85/100 - Excellent (4.5)

  • Bilouaustria's rating of the film In the Fade

    It is one thing to reverse the precept where terrorists are germans and the victims immigrants. It is another to emphasize each and every scene to make sure Akin makes his point. The film is therefore too heavy, not with its topic, but formally, where he underlines over and over again every idea. It is almost a communication issue at this point : do you trust your audience ? The last third is just embarrassing.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film In the Fade

    A film that confirms the decline of a talented director. This is difficult to demarcate from any mainstream (US) drama with artistic pretensions. Terrible slow motion shots and visceral without any compensatory mechanism. Interiors in Germany and landscapes in Greece reflect well the grim political proceedings and the juxtaposition between legalism and thug subculture. Politically incomplete, artistically sterile.

  • VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film In the Fade

    Este film de Fatih Akin es una cruda reflexión sobre las deficiencias legales en la impartición de justicia y los crimenes de odio raciales en la Alemania actual, señalando los mutuos prejuicios y el racismo provienentes de todos los sectores de la sociedad en ese país. La cinta marca también la primera ocasión en que la actriz Diane Kruger obtiene el rol estelar en una producción hablada en su idioma natal.
